California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday took out a full-page ad in Variety to urge Hollywood to "walk the walk" on its value and avoid shooting in states waging a "cruel assault on essential rights." "Hollywood: your values, you choice," the ad begins, touting California as the "best place in America to create" and the "home for storytelling and story tellers" for over 100 years. It mentions the "robust tax incentives" and "the best culture" for creators, adding: "Most importantly, we share your values." "Over the past several years, the legislatures of states like Georgia and Oklahoma have waged a


Filming in conservative states save tons of money on production costs and taxes. Gov. Greaseball should try to fix the myriad of problems in his own state.

I just love it when Edward Munster, Jr. talks all ghetto and rhyming and slangy. It convinces the homelanders that he down with the scene. He badazz. He drip. He snatched. He walk da walk an’ talk da talk, see. But problem is: Hollywood is dying, Guv. Get a clue.

I have no problem whatsoever with them filming here in OK. We can always use the money. But if they object to our lifestyle, then stay away. We don't need you.

Hallmark Channel has made numerous movies filmed in my central Oklahoma town in recent years. Sylvester Stallone has been filming “King of Tulsa” series here this year. Our little town now has its own film commission to keep up with all the requests.

Last time Reese Witherspoon graced us with her presence here in Georgia, she was pulled over for DUI. Her response, “Do you know who I am?” Can’t even stomach looking at Newsom and his slicked back greasy hair.

For someone who maybe wants to run for president, Newsom is sure doing a good job going state by state alienating potential voters and eliminating electoral votes with his recent ads and comments. He may do well in liberal cities, but fly over country, which Newsom seems to disdain, feels the same about him.

I hate to break it to you buddy. But PROFIT is Hollywood's number one value. There's a reason that Films are produced outside of Hollywood. It's because the cost of doing business in California is to high. From labor, taxes, safety, permitting, materials, traffic, crime and pollution.

As a Georgian, I am with #15. They can keep their values (or rather their lack of them) back in CA. They won’t, however, Georgia is business friendly and the cost of doing a movie here is half what it is on the left coast. Newsome is peeing in the wind with this campaign.

I wonder if Newsome is going to try and prohibit the USC and UCLA sports teams, who are jumping to the Big 10 conference in 2024, from traveling to the red states of the Big 10. Left coast politics will probably finish killing the PAC 12, reducing the status of the "Granddaddy of them All," the Rose Bowl, to that of the Pinstripe, Cactus, Liberty, Idaho Potato, and Independence Bowls.

Amazon is temporarily closing its Amazon Go store at Fourth Avenue and Pike Street for "the safety of our store employees, customers, and third-party vendors." Six other Amazon Go stores throughout Seattle have not been slated to close and will remain open. Employees from the Fourth Avenue and Pike Street location have been offered opportunities at other nearby stores, according to Amazon.

Carbon offsets generated from forests to counteract future climate-warming emissions from California's big polluters are rapidly being depleted as trees are ravaged by wildfire and disease, new research published on Friday suggests. One of California's key policy tools to combat climate change may be falling far short of its goals, the researchers said - raising questions about similar carbon offset programs around the world. The study, published in the journal Frontiers in Forests and Global Change, was conducted by CarbonPlan, a San Francisco-based non-profit that researches the integrity of programs designed to offset carbon emissions.

As the people of New Zealand confront their nation's troubled past with colonization and denying the Maori people rights, a name change for the island nation is being considered as a part of its own reckoning. A petition that aims to change the Dutch anglicized name of New Zealand to its indigenous Maori designation of Aotearoa has collected more than 70,000 signatures, prompting a parliamentary committee to consider the idea. New Zealand member of parliament Debbie Ngarewa-Packer , co-leader of The Maori Party, joined All Things Considered to elaborate on the significance of this potential name change, the journey to indigenous

When WNBA star Brittney Griner was convicted on drug charges Thursday, she was not merely sentenced to nine years in a normal jail or prison. She was given time in a Russian penal colony, which is quite different than a normal correctional facility. Russia's penal colonies are descendants of the notorious Soviet-era gulags where prisoners have been subjected to harsh treatment and poor conditions. Prisoners in the system have been beaten by other inmates, endured torture and forced to watch Russian propaganda for hours every day in what's known as "awareness raising." Following several days of Griner's trial, which stemmed

Coal prices are soaring and global coal consumption is expected to return to record levels reached almost 10 years ago as the global energy supply crunch continues. While investors in coal stocks are having a field day thanks to high coal prices, curbs on carbon emissions are taking a backseat as markets and governments scramble to stock up on traditional energy supply amid bottlenecks caused by the Ukraine war, analysts say. Worse, slowing investments in new coal-powered energy facilities have tightened the supply of coal even further, Shaw and Partners senior analyst Peter O'Connor told CNBC's "Squawk Box Asia" on

Just as retailers are starting to gear up for the holiday season, there are warnings of a possible nationwide shipping logjam. A shortage of rail workers, not enough rail cars and importers failing to pick up their goods are causing cargo to pile up once again at the Port of Los Angeles — a key link in the U.S. supply chain. Port director Gene Seroka said containers are already piling up and clogging the docks. "There are about 35,000 containers that are designated for rail on our docks right now," he said.

WASHINGTON -- President Joe Biden's “loose cough” has returned as he faces a rebound case of COVID-19, his doctor said Tuesday, though he “continues to feel well." White House physician Kevin O’Connor provided the update on the president's condition as he continues to test positive for the virus. He said Biden “remains fever-free," and that his temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation “remain entirely normal.” Still, Biden is required to remain in isolation through at least Thursday under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines — and perhaps longer under tougher White House protocols if he continues

In February, American basketball star Brittney Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport after attempting to bring cannabis oil into the country, which is illegal according to Russian law. In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone. As we’ve noted before, 99% of all Russian prosecutions end with a guilty verdict, and with a maximum available sentence of ten years,

The talk in the media is about a “beefed-up” IRS. The IRS budget for FY 2022 totals nearly $14 billion ($11.9 billion in appropriated funds) with a full-time equivalent (FTE) staff ceiling of 79,808 (75,533 from appropriated funding.) Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress, at the behest of the Biden Administration, wants to take that up an additional almost $80 billion, with 1% going to Department of the Treasury offices other than the IRS. That adds up to nearly $93 billion, seven times this year’s budget. SEVEN TIMES.

The United States is preparing a new $1bn security assistance package for Ukraine, which will include munitions for long-range weapons and armoured medical transport vehicles, according the Reuters news agency. The package would be one of the largest so far and is expected to be announced as early as Monday, three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters. The US has given about $8.8bn in aid to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on February 24. The officials, speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden had not yet signed the next weapons package, and cautioned that weapons packages can change in value and content before they are signed.
